The problem lies in the file system

Some choices:

Format for Mac and use PC software that can open Mac format disks like TransMac http://www.asy.com .

Format disk as FAT32, both machines should be able to use it. A problem with FAT32 is that the largest file it can hold is 4GB.

Format with NTFS and use Paragons NTFS for Mac OS X http://www.paragon-software.com/home/ntf... .

hard drives are hard drives.

You are only going to run into problems if you format it and use a file system type not supported by one of the systems.

How to use flash drive


Cruzer Micro is an USB external memory where you can store files.
It is automatically detected and installed on all Windows OS from Windows 2000 onward, same on Mac OS and recent Linux versions.
All you have to do is plugging the device into USB.
After the flash drive had been automatically installed , it will be displayed under Computer as an external disk.
You can copy and transfer files using Cut, Copy and Paste functions, or Send to function in windows, or the file manager, depending on the OS used.
In Windows, before unplugging the memory from USB , it is better to turn off the computer or use the 'safely remove USB' function located near to the clock, on the lower right hand corner.

I just bought a new computer and I need to transfer files


A SanDisk Cruzer Mini is a memory stick, like a modern floppy disk. Plug it into a USB port (a thin rectangular hole) - it may be at the back of your computer. Your computer should then recognise it and you can copy files onto it.

Cruzer 2 GB


Right-click on the Sandisk in My Computer and select Format... Click start and wait a little, once it's done you should have access to the entire drive.
